KaZaK Composites proposes to develop and implement improvements to current dunnage systems by designing and prototyping cost effective dunnage airbags and T-AKE stanchion accessories. Key requirements for a redesigned dunnage system include elimination of wood dunnage, supporting structural loads, significant reduction in total ownership costs, easily repaired system components, light weight, ease of use and high impact resistance. Dunnage airbags will be designed to meet and/or exceed existing load requirements, reduce weight, withstand environmental conditions (hot, cold, wet), take rough handling and provide ease of handling. Stanchion accessories will be designed to perform equivalent functions as current wood dunnage practices while significantly reducing time to implement. Both items will be designed to provide years of service with minimal repair and maintenance. Proposed dunnage systems will not functionality of current impact restraint systems/operations, or require costly transport system modifications. Developing designs will be compatible, effective and where applicable, interchangeable with current dunnage approaches.
